    No more automatic design view refresh?

    migstradamus
      I just upgraded from MX to CS3. When you delete cell, for example, or most anything else, the design view shows a distorted representation of the table, with open space. Pressing F5 to refresh the design view corrects this. In MX, you could go to the general preferences and uncheck "Faster Table Editing (Deferred Update)", after which it updates the design view instantly, with no F5 needed. That option is gone in CS3, so it's necessary to keep hitting F5 after each trivial deletion. Truly obnoxious. Is there a hidden way to turn on automatic view updating or are we supposed to hit F5 every 10 seconds forever?

      Even saving the doc doesn't update the design view as it used to. Guess it's time to program a mouse button for F5.

      Saludos, Mig

          Mig,

          No, that preference was removed because it confused too many people.

          Note that another way to trigger the update in MX was to change the
          focus to be outside of the *table* being edited, but now you only need
          to change the focus to be outside of the *cell* being edited.

          Hope this helps,
          Randy
